to participate to use broadband in their daily lives. things like -- things like how to find a job online, how to access city services online, how to communicate with family members. those types of things will be handled primarily by our community partners, but in the department of technology, we need administrative personnel to help us manage that and make sure they are doing what they are supposed to be doing under the grant. supervisor mirkarimi: that sounds great, but to me, it is just a question of growing government more so and not really understanding what the total objective is. when we benefit from these federal grants, i am not seeing what the goals are, at least not in what is provided before us. i also want to take this gratuitous moment to remind the department of technology, that if part of the premise -- for me, and us -- is to build inclusion of san franciscans into having access to technology, being able to elevate their level of information, and transmitting and receiving, i do not understand, ofor $60,000, of doing streaming audio of the commissions and task force is not cov

hearing, we used the information, which i thought was helpful in constructing a resolution before us today. i want to thank supervisor avalos and mar for the co- sponsors of of the resolution. i do not plan on this being another in-depth hearing as it was two weeks ago, but as we were able to will document from that particular hearing, it seemed rather hasty and inconsistent 5 rec and parks department and the part of the environment and city to move on this termination of lease on the recycle center by using the premise that the recycling center is a nonconforming use for this park -- for this part of golden gate park, and as it relates to the master plan, yet not exercise any due diligence as the city had done elsewhere in trying to help a resource like the recycling center moved to a different location. that lack of due diligence, i think, proves it was a rash decision in the way that it was processed by the wreck and park department, compared to the water recycling plant that is being proposed by the puc in golden gate park, which would also be categorically accepted as also a nonconfor

go. others have not. this is an evolutionary process in us trying to make sure that we are getting the best return for our investment from all the city departments tasked and funded with work force. first source was something the city used to stand by in terms of making sure that those who contract with san francisco and public contracts are doing their best to hire locally. this is a predecessor to mandatory local hiring. it was not under oewd, but was an island in itself. the people who had run that had left the city. it was without the kind of leadership that would modernize its approach. we legislated that first source would be put under the rubric of oewd. now, most everything we have been leading toward in terms of synthesizing work force dollars, which is still in play and evolving -- first source, which was never under oewd before, and the question of how weak influence legislatively both the public and private sector on their compliance with our local hiring. that would also go under oewd. it is a full-frontal strategy try to make sure the investments we make every single
from port jurisdiction, would it make sense for us to figure out a legislative enhancement that does the same thing as public works construction but also includes some of the port for a project like america's cup? we're talking about 1000 jobs. others say more. others say less. would that be to our advantage to try to secure that agreement to make sure that those jobs go locally? >> from owd's perspective, the idea of local jobs generated out of the america's cup was high on everyone's priority list. our interest is to continue to work with the port to figure out better mechanisms. those opportunities will be generated not just by construction. there will be opportunities across the board. we want to have a system in place to match the needs of san francisco workers with the needs of an employer to try to make that linkage as strong as we can. supervisor avalos: the teeth is not in any legislation we have the requires that level of compliance on mandatory local hiring. >> that is correct. supervisor avalos: that is as it relates to any port project. in this case we're talking about a

though it is better, a lot of us feel a could be stronger and more explicit. it is only about a page and a half. there are other aspects of the electric research plan that cca could be more iterative about. the key problem that we noted was that when they put together the advisory committee, there were no consultants on that committee. that is why it is not as robust as we feel it needs to be. what we respectfully ask the staff to do, after today, there will be two consultants. and i would ask lafco to have those consultants do that work. we make sure we are covering all the bases. those of you that remember the power plant battle might remember the previous 2002 electric resources plan was a problem because it promoted that power plants. staff and other officials with constantly bring up the electric resources plan as an excuse to say that we should build a power plant. that is why it is crucial that it does in due diligence to make sure that this is really robust on cca. that way we got, the hearings later that says it does not specify. we need that to happen so that we can be conf
the community, for using this money, since it is in the millions of dollars, i would like to make a controversial suggestion and see where it goes from here. according to my work experience at san francisco general hospital, it is a sad commentary that much of the time he used by city employees using city in -- computers has been underutilized. one of the things that i would like to point out, which many consider a taboo subject, is how much pornography actually flows through the city's various computers during the workday. i have a suspicion the comptroller's office has some information in regards to that, but i do not know for sure. i think it is proper to maybe do an investigation using this grant money, to see how much actual pornography flows through the city's best computer system during the workday. my main interest is not only on pornography, but also to highlight the federal law enforcement efforts on the very sensitive subject of child pornography. thank you. supervisor chu: thank you. is there anyone from the public that would like to comment on this item? seeing none,

[laughter] now over 1300 miles notice the road, they drove every night and i noted the ammunition. the other problem with afghanistan is called pakistan 1500 miles that extends here to miami. now understand the essence of what we are doing. we went in 2001 because the taliban supported al qaeda who had killed 3,000 americans at the world trade center's we went in to get the seven guns but what happened? in my judgment several things happened. president bush, a god bless him, had a religious belief in liberty four people and i think he confuse that with his role of president and took that and extracted it to say we should give liberty to the iraqis and afghans which is a noble idea but if you are a president sometimes you have to be hard-headed how you apply an idea into action and we were not able to do with sell when they said who will do this idea? they said if we have the united states military. so we took counterinsurgency a subject i know all lot about because i thought to it really hard for many months. but we perve
you today. thanks for inviting us in and showing us your amazing facility today. >> my pleasure. >> how long has electric works been around? >> electric works has been in san francisco since the beginning of 2007. we moved here from brisbane from our old innovation. we do printmaking, gallery shows, and we have a fabulous retail store where there are lots of fun things to find. >> we will look at all of that as we walk around. it is incredible to me how many different things you do. how is it you identify that san francisco was in need of all these different services? >> it came from stepping out of graduate school in 1972. i wrote a little thing about how this is an idea, how our world should work. it should have printmaking, archiving, a gallery. it should have a retail store. in 1972, i wanted to have art sales, point-of-sale at the grocery store. >> so you go through the manifesto. with the bay area should have. you are making art incredibly accessible in so many different ways, so that is a good segue. let's take a walk around the facilities. here we are in your gallery spa

is the cultural art director. tell us what moad's mission is. what does it do? >> the museum of the african diaspora showcases the history, art, and cultural richness that resulted from the dispersal of africans throughout the world. we do that through compelling and innovative exhibitions, public programs, and education programs. our goal is to celebrate and present for appreciation to our broad and diverse public the controversial energy contributions of people of african descent to world culture in all aspects in all areas, including politics, culture, economics, education, just in all aspects of cultural forms of expression. >> one of the fascinating things since 2005 when the museum was established, is that it has become clear from science that all of humanity originates in africa. how does that influence the education programs or presentation here at moad? >> obviously, being able to attenuate that, and there is a sign at the door that says, "when did you know that you were african?" our point is that we share a common dna, and it connects us on a number of different levels. this inst

back from this key coastal town of -- a key coastal town. the libyan forces used tanks and artillery. our world affairs editors sent this report. >> at dawn this morning, it was a media elite clear that the rebels enthusiasm and fighting spirit was fading. it has carried them 150 miles westward along the coast, beating colonel gaddafi's troops back. but other supply lines are stretched and gaddafi's troops are fighting a more friendly territory. we went with the rebels to the next town, which they attacked fiercely. but the offender's head -- the defenders had better weapons. when we went there, we found the rebels had faded away during the night. from a distance collies i checkpoint which we eventually decided was probably manned by gaddafi loyalists. it was. a couple of soldiers opened fire in our direction. >> keep your head down. >> we drove back hastily down the road to the important oil town captured by the rebels on friday night. today, far fewer of them were making a stand here. the rebels are being forced all the way back to ras lanuf. it has been quite a success for colonel
'm erica hill. good to have you with us this morning. we begin with that ongoing pain at the pump, which you have likely noticed. the unrest in the middle east has sent gas prices soaring over the past few weeks. a gallon of gasoline now averages which is 78 cents higher than it was just one year ago. cbs news business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis joins us from a gas station here in manhattan with more on that price spike and how washington may respond to it. rebecca, good morning. >> good morning, erica. and this is a scene we're really seeing play out across gas stations throughout the country. prices back near $4 a gallon in some places. they even are paying $4 a gallon. back where prices were in 2008. and now the government is considering getting involved. unrest in the middle east has gasoline prices here soaring. in just two weeks prices at the pump have jumped 33 cents. that's the second biggest increase in that amount of time, ever. >> $65 for gas. pretty unbelievable. >> reporter: u.s. drivers are currently paying an average of $3.51 a gallon. with libya's oil fiel

i want us to be optimistic, the forecast for lyon-martin. understand how we got here, but look for all the indicators that i think really suggest that it could have a bright future. >> i think to the board's credit, they're really started moving on this quickly. they were provided a pro bono attorney, excellent in providing guidance. in my conversations with the board, they have been absolutely wonderful. she is a physician. that is not her area of expertise, i think should be the first to say, they put the budget together. they have done two turnarounds in two health centers in california. from what i am hearing, when i did reference checking, his last assignment at the coastal alliance was very happy with his work. he really made a difference up there. i think they're taking the right steps. the other thing, as you can imagine, the board was scared, not sure where to turn, and the attorneys helped with that. supervisor mirkarimi: very good. are there any other members of the consortium that would like to present? supervisor kim: just to get some clarification and the restruct
around us, we have a workforce that is going to work. we aren't giving people the opportunity to go to work and we have the buildings, in the historical and careful fashion is done, and using $50 million of stimulus money again, i am so thankful to our congress members for helping us to get this started. as you can see, lives will literally be changed because of this project. i guarantee you, congresswoman, that we will see this through for you and for us. thank you.
